of things i would be listening for. finally, he has to bring the heart we saw michelle obama touch on. 2008, he was this candidate that in spired so much passion in people. that has waned is an understatement in four years, some people feel bitterly disappointed. can he reconnect and resell that brand and make people have that crush on him again they had in 2008. >> oh, the crush on obama. we'll look for those three points. we'll look for you as well, part of our primetime coverage of the democratic national convention. the whole thing kicks off 7:00 eastern, wolf blitzer, anderson cooper, the rest of cnn's political team. and 10:00 is the hour in which the president will officially accept his party's nomination for re-election. at midnight, piers morgan will put a wrap on the 2012 dnc for us on cnn. i will be watching. i hope you will be as well. >>> i want to take you back to mitt romney. moments ago he spoke about the democratic national convention. >> i think it will be interesting to listen to the president tonight. what i'd like him to do is report on his promises, but there are forgo

for barack obama. some of the rather key ones is because he chose michelle as his wife. >> that was very sensible i think, yes. no, i think that she is a perfect partner for him. she is very strong. she's sort of balances, healthy, and practical firmness with gentleness and nurturing and she's a terrific mother and that is enormously important. >> you know barack better than most people. what will he be feeling? a lot of pressure? does he get nervous? >> i don't think he's nervous. i think he's very prepared. i think the speech is going to be great. and i think, you know, he's probably stretching his long limbs and excited to address the crowd. >> better than bill clinton's? that's the key question. >> i think he'll be different. everyone serves their purpose. michelle was about storytelling. about helping us to kind of frame the campaign issues and deeply, you know, loving intimate ways and bill clinton was about gaining perspective. on the last four years. and i think my brother is going to be about looking ahead. >> i think the crowd rather liked what you've just been saying. it's all
of barack obama's first-term record, and they are deploying him now in swing states, even more than michelle obama, he's probably the biggest asset they have. but life is long. you never know when you're going to end up, that these two men are now embracing to this extent. >> life is really long. >> you know, the president got a bounce at the convention, and it's arguable that clinton played a big part in that. we have this new pew research center poll that i found real estate interesting. it showed, when they were asking, what was the highlight of the democratic convention, 29% bill clinton's speech, 16% said the president's speech, and michelle obama's speech was at 15%. so does that also mean that there is a downside to having president clinton -- >> oh, you mean overshadowing -- you know, he -- everybody knows hays not the candidate. i think he's a great character witness for the candidate. i think there was a dangerous dangeat the convention of that kind of a result, because you want your candidate to shine, not the person who is testifying on your behalf to shine. but i think right now
would ever consider running for president both she and the presidt, michelle obama and the president, agreed that michelle doesn't have the patience for the job. the president agreed that was a little interesting to say the least. gop challenger mitt romney will deliver a speech of the clinton global initiative meeting in an hour. expected to hit the president hard on foreign policy. >> he said tha the developments of the middle east are bumps in the road. these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. this is time for the president who will shape events in the middle east not just be merciful. >> white house spokesman jay carney calls romney's comments desperate and offensive. the president will also speak at the clinton global initiative later today after mitt romney does. >> here is a list of where the candidates have been. this is from dana millbank. the president has found places in for leno, jimmy fallon, for "people," "entertainment tonight and "the view." mitt romney has had an opportunity to sit down on the set of "live with kelly and michael." and "the tonight show

"starting point" beginning right now. first we have some news just in to cnn. two american soldiers in afghanistan were killed today in an attack by a suicide bomber. the attack happened in logar province just south of kabul, afghanistan's capital. a spokesman for the governor of logar said the suicide bomber detonated himself during a military operation. he also said one american soldier was injured. we will have more on this developing story as details come in. >>> a big day here in new york. iran's controversial leader will deliver his final address to the u.n. general assembly as president of that country. that address is today. mahmoud ahmadinejad is stirring up controversy before he even begins. he told reporters that israel will be eliminated from
complaints are growing. does michelle obama's initiative give students enough to eat at school? "newsroom" starts now. >>> good morning. thank you so much for being with us. i'm carol costello. we begin this hour with president obama about to face two very different audiences. just minutes from now the president will address the united nations general assembly, but it's not just world leaders who will be listening to his speech about foreign policy. american voters may also tune in to his comments amid a spike in international hot spots. the latest from iran, they have reportedly test fired anti-ship missiles in the waters off its southern coast. it's possibly troubling for several reasons. according to an iranian news agency, the drill was close to u.s. led naval exercises in the persian gulf. the test comes amid spiking tensions with israel and mutual threats of military action, and it comes on a day when both presidenobama and the republican nominee, mitt romney, deliver key speeches on u.s. foreign policy. as i said, mr. obama is about to speak momentarily. mr. romney spoke in the las
pictures were published of the wife of president obama. i think michelle obama would take a different view about pictures of her topless than she might about someone on a beach in miami. i think that's the key difference. >> well, some might argue and probably very few, but some might argue that even if you're in a private home, is it ever wise to go outside of that home and take your top off? >> i don't think anyone would disagree with that. i have worked for celebrity clients for over 20 years. if any celebrity client came to me and asked me whether it was ever wise to take their top off in a public place anywhere, i would say absolutely not. so i think kate, the duchess of cambridge was unwise to do that. i think, however, that the punishment is inappropriate. it does not seem to me that justifies a worldwide set of pictures on the basis of and moments in discretion where she thought she was safe and where she thought she was private. >> well, it just comes on the heels of the prince harry scandal and the nude pictures taken of him in a private hotel room. >> well, i think this is absol
process. >> that's politics now. it's celebrity. obama is definitely a celebrity and michelle is a celebrity. that is how the world runs for better or worse. i think for worse, but -- >> for better. i like it. i do an obama impression. i would like four more years of employment. >> i do a mitt romney impression. being uncomfortable talking to laborers. i would like to see him win. >> so good. >> you have to do the impressions because you are talking about it. >> i don't think so. >> come on, do it. >> what are do you want to hear? ask me a couple of questions. >> give me a speech ad if we have hope and change -- >> that's a speech to me, but let me hear your. >> for we have hope and change, i need your vote. if you feel the empire strikes back was better than jedi, i need your vote. i want sasha and malia to go to bed. >> of all the speech you saw at the rnc and dnc, which was your favorite? >> i like paul ryan because we were talking about the youth vote and he got the youth vote name dropping ac/dc and led zeppelin. those are the bands kids today are into. i appreciated that
of the political process. >> oh, that's politics now. politics is celebrity. i think obama is definitely a celebrity and i think michelle is definitely a celebrity. i think celebrity is how the world runs now for better or worse, i think for worse. >> for better. i like it. i do an obama impression so it's i would kind of like four more years, dot, dot, of employment. >> i do a mitt romney impression. which is just me being uncomfortable talking to laborers. >> yeah. >> so i'd really like to see him win. >> so good. >> i want to see -- you got to do the impression since you've been talking about it. >> i can't. don, i don't think so. >> come on! do it! >> what do you want to hear? ask me a couple of questions, don. >> give me the speech! if we have hope and change, that's the speech to me but let me hear yours. >> that's pretty good. if we have hope and change, i need your vote. if you feel "empire strikes back" is better than "jedi" i need your vote. >> everything you heard at the rnc and dnc which was your favorite? >> i like paul ryan. we were jug talk about the youth vote and totally
you about my friend, barack obama. no one could tell it as eloqu t eloquently as you did, michelle, on monday night. but i know him, to state the obvious from a different perspective, i know him and i want to show you -- i want to show you the character of a leader who had what it took when the american people literally stood on the brink of a new depression. a leader who has what it takes to lead us over the next four years to a future as great as our people. i want to take you inside the white house to see the president as i see him every day, because i don't see him in sound bytes. i walk 30 paces down the hall into the oval office and i see him, i watch him in action. four years ago, the middle class was already losing ground and then the bottom fell out. the financial crisis hit like a sledge hammer on all the people i grew up with. you remember the headlines. you saw some of them in the previews. highlight. highest job losses in 60 years. headlines. economy on the brink. markets plummet worldwide. from the very moment president obama sat behind the desk resolute in the oval o
and our personnel is protected. >> in the midst of all of this michele, as you well know, there is an election going on and governor romney says that the obama administration is not being tough enough. is he right? >> look, i think that in this specific instance of these demonstrations, and what has happened in libya, i think that the response of the obama administration has been appropriate. if we step back though and look at a broader frame of u.s. policy in the middle east and indeed u.s. foreign policy in the world, i think that there's an argument to be made that the united states has not taken the leadership role it really should, that there is very widespread disappointment in the middle east for example that the united states is not doing more regarding syria, that the united states hasn't done as much as people hoped to help the nations in democracies in tunisia, and libya and so there is a way in which what governor romney said is justified. >> thank you, michele dunne, from the carnegie endowment for peace. we appreciate your perspective. >>> when newsroom cont
there next to the iranians and that program is moving very, very fast. >> listen to what michelle florny, a president of the president campaign national security committee says in defining the way they perceive -- the obama administration perceives this so-called red line. it's very different than the way the prime minister explained it today. >> well, i think we have laid out a red line. and that is iran cannot actually get a weapon. >> that's very different than what the prime minister says. she's willing to give it more time as opposed to reaching that 90% threshold which is the israeli position. >> i think you have to look at what the prime minister how he framed it today, wolf. he said the question is not when iran gets a weapon or even decides to make a weapon. the question is at what point can we no longer stop iran from making that weapon? and that's what that red line was about. he was drawing a line between the medium enriched uranium and the high enriched uranium and beyond that point it will be virtually impossible for us to stop that bomb because they will put that bomb toge
